Duke University Libraries, Confederate Imprints

Duke holds one of the world’s largest collections of Confederate imprints, or items printed in the Confederate States of America between secession from the Union and the surrender of the Confederate military forces (December 1860-April 1865). Confederate imprints are notable for their fragility and ephemerality, due to the scarcity of high-quality paper and a lack of large publishing and printing houses in the South, as well as for the view their contents give of military and civilian life in the Confederacy. This collection from Duke University’s David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library contains examples of the wide variety of Confederate imprints, from broadsides and printed forms to military manuals and novels.
